Version 3.3 is released

Post by MtnViewJohn »

New features:
  • Color blending modes using a new blend adjustment have been added. They work like the CSS color blendng modes except that hue, saturation, color, and luminosity modes are not provided. The Porter-Duff Clear, Plus, and Xor compositing modes have also been added, as they seemed useful.
  • Gallery upload logic updated to work with the updated gallery.
  • Animation preview can now loop the animation.
  • Command-line version can now invoke a display executable to view png, svg, or QuickTime output. This facilitates integration of Context Free with editor tools. A cfdg build system for Sublime Text on a Mac might look like:

    Code: Select all

    {
        "cmd": ["/usr/local/bin/cfdg", "--display=/usr/bin/open", "$file"],
        "file_regex": "^([^\n:]+):([0-9]+):([0-9]+): (error: .+)$"
    }
Bug fixes:
  • Animation of tiled/frieze designs did not work if the design used the ftime() or frame() functions.
This version has been uploaded to Debian. But Context Free v3.3 depends on a new version of libagg2, so it will be a while before you can load it as a package. Downloading and compiling the source may be easier.
